Don't you hate it when things aren't quite working out like you hoped?
My first hoop is done and looking wonderful, but I'm going on attempt number 3 on Hoop two and it's just not quite doing what I want it too, argh!

Now I'm starting to feel some time pressure too, eek! Good thing I have all afternoon today to work on this.

Sorry for the delay, I've now received ALL of my bookmarks, and they are SO fantastic!

From left to right:
We'll start off with Ransom's -gorgeous- quilted fabric bookmark. I LOVE the fabric and am jealous of your straight lines from the sewing machine!

Next are three(!) fabulous bookmarks from Jennieingram, the centre one being an Order of the Phoenix  bookmark complete with gold leafing! I love the other ones as well, it seems like there's always some new detail to be found in that print! These came with a very charming letter from Alastor Moody himself! How did he know how much I wanted to be in the Order of the Phoenix?!

Next are two gorgeous bookmarks from Chughes225, one is my name in chinese, such a gorgeous job papercutting, you must have so much patience!
Also of course Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, it's absolutely PERFECT!

And last but certainly not least my gorgeous crocheted one from Coryjo. Oh my! I absolutely love the pattern and ADORE the colours! I can't stop touching it, haha!

I love how widely different all of my bookmarks are, and yet how absolutely perfect each one is for me.
Thank you so much to my partners for being so thoughtful and of course to jennieingram for organising the swap!!

Holy Radio Silence Batman!!

Sorry for being quiet, I've been away the past couple of days and returned to no internets(!)
Everything is back and in working order now and I'm slowly catching up on the discussion..

I brought the smaller of my two hoops along with me though and I'm just on finished with it, so now onto my last one! I have the idea all sorted out but it's technically more challenging then the first, I'm so nervous to get started  Shocked

Ooh, talk about late to the party!
All of the bookmarks look so amazing! I'd love to stick any one of them into my books Smiley

I'm so anxious now to start getting mine! I'll be sitting by my mailbox ready to harass my postie tomorrow  Grin

Sneaking in for a late-breaking update! I finally managed to snag a weekend when both of my nieces and I could get together and get our craft on!

I'm really glad I decided to wait and do it all together, I spread everything out infront of them and let them take turns picking out yarn until they were all gone, they had so much fun with this part and they totally picked different colours then I would have expected them too.

And let me tell you, doing the plating is SO much easier when you have three people!

The scarves turned out AMAZING! Both of the girls love love love them and I'm totally jealous, check them out!:

Sign me up for the next round, I want one of my own!!!

I finally managed to buckle down and have a major crafting session the other day!
I had a LOT of fun with this swap and I hope my partners like my selections, I know I had trouble parting with a few Wink

Holy cow, that thick scarf looks amazing and warm!

Also, hooray! I finally got the last of my packages in the mail today! Here's a bit of a catch up!

This group is from Shdwstrm, she also sent two Canadian magnets for me to give my nieces so they can know one of the places their yarn came from, how thoughtful!

This group came from Slingmomma, really gorgeous colours!

and last but not least,

This group is from Myklia!

I laid everything out to admire and drool over, I was a little bit worried there wouldn't be an "even" amount of colours to satisfy both of my nieces, but you wonderful swappers did such a great job!
Now I have to decide if I want to wait until my nieces and my own schedule meshes up that we can make these together, or if I lose my patience and just make the scarves for them as gifts!
